Dead fish

Reports have come into the Thames Anglers Conservancy of a major Tidal Thames Pollution incident on Tuesday.

Heavy rain over the last 24 hours have caused Thames Water to release raw sewage into the river from the Combined Sewage Overflows . Bubbler boats and hydrogen peroxide are being used to increase the oxygen levels.

TAC members have reported seeing may dead Roach, Dace, Bream, schooly Bass and big Flounder. At Blackfriars Bridge, condoms and other toilet waste has been seen on the outgoing tide.
